Just acknowledging an important moment in human history.
What's the point of any other day celebrating a particular moment in history? What's the point if Independence Day? Or President's Day? Or Thanksgiving?

1492 was the year  and he actually RE- discovered the Bahamas, not the continental US. Pretty silly if you ask me. There was some discussion years back about renaming it exploration day...I saw no difference.

It would be equal to me going to the Grand Canyon and saying look at this hole I DISCOVERED. I NAME THIS HOLE Missdameanor's Canyon while I plant a flag!
